100 Miles of Nowhere: Heavy Caffeination Division, by Jeremy E.

06.8.2012 | 7:58 am

Originally there were big plans for a peleton of cyclists on trainers at Portland Head Light, but as the day loomed near, fewer and fewer people shared my deranged enthusiasm for riding a 100 miles to Nowhere. The coming monsoon was the coup de grĂ¢ce. I was suddenly alone and looking at 100 miles in the pouring rain. My friend is the proprietor of a favorite coffee shop of mine, and graciously offered a spot under his roof and the promise of free caffienation. Not quite as picturesque, but certainly drier with quick access to a paninni and gelato, if needed.201206051356.jpg

The public space gave me an opportunity to while away the miles talking to people about Camp Kesem, Livestrong, TwinSix and Fatcyclist.com.


I found myself wishing I could have a small table when riding on the road. Far more convenient than stuffing everything in my jersey pockets.


Coming in for the 75-mile rest stop.


I take my division by half a wheel. Epic.

The final tally, plus cool-down.


Well that’s it from here. Thanks for the inspired lunacy!

    Nice looking capuccino! Kudos to the Royal Bean for hosting your ride and keeping you well caffienated!

    Thanks for the report. Nice pace – you and several others who have filed reports are setting a very high bar for the rest of us.

    I particularly like the Pretty Girls Sing Soprano on the sign in the background. After your time on the bike, will you be joining them?
